Peg Folly

This old lane was once part of an ancient packhorse route that came over Bolsterstone ridge and then via Green Lane to cross the river Don at Unsliven bridge. A large stone guide stoop, at Peg Folly’s junction near Green Farm Hamlet is testament that this old lane was part of an important route. The guide stoop dates from sometime between 1733 and 1738. It has been suggested that the lane was part of an ancient salt route, long forgotten, with the barest whisper of physical indicators left, with which to trace its journey through the landscape. It is certainly a very old lane. It is shown on the OS six inch first series six inch to one mile map: The Definitive Map reference is: STO/75
